Diagnosis of ITP in 2014. Ex renal specialist nurse. I retired in Nov 2019 after 46 years on the front line. I firmly believe in empowering patients to be involved as much as possible in their care; always question medics about the evidence base they use.
Anamika have a look at this. It's written by European nurses for nurses who have no knowledge of ITP e.g.me when I was first diagnosed. It's not too technical and explains about the various treatments. The drug names might be different in some countries but if you google them you will be able to find the equivalent names.
